    I live in Virginia Beach, VA, and have enjoyed reading about everyone's Adventures in Quilting. One of ny favorite parts of this site it seeing (and being inspired by) quilts and other projects. Some of my recent sewing projects have been to make a quilt celebrating my parents' 60th wedding anniversary, and taking charge of a project to sew and sell adult bibs for charity. My next big project is reasigning the rooms in my house to get a room exclusively for my sewing (it's now the dining room.

    These photos are of the anniversary quilt. Family members drew memories on 6" squares. These were added to photos printed on fabric to make the quilt.

    Welcome from New York state! Nice quilt! It's neat that the 'tree' is on the back. What a great family document!
